In February 2009 NGO Monitor published a monograph The NGO Front in the Gaza War: The Durban Strategy Continues, analyzing over 500 statements from 50 NGOs during the Gaza conflict. The report describes the NGOs’ consistent manipulation of international law, disproportionate condemnation of Israel, and erasure of Israeli human rights and Hamas’ use of human shields.  This demonization of Israel will continue through calls for “war crimes” trials against Israeli officials and during the Durban Review Conference in April 2009.
